World Christian Database

Christian Finance

The Christian Finance query shows data added this quarter from the World Bank (as reported in the UN's Human Development Report, 2014) being applied to estimate the total Christian income by continent and globe with a drill-down to the country level.

The simple assumption is that each person's income is the same as each country's Gross National Income per person. Within any one country no assumptions are made as to whether Christians have more or less income than others, but when aggregated to regions and the globe the weighting of many Christians in countries with higher incomes becomes apparent.

The results indicate that the personal income of church members in 2015 is in the order of 42,000 billion dollars.
